    At 90 years old Harry finally retired a couple days ago. They guys at Cloverleaf Precision in Yukon run it now. Seem like nice fellas and they are looking to improve the range.

    Wow he just told me last month that he would be there until he died.
    I was expecting you to post Harry passed or something

    I think instead of gone you should have said retired.

    That would have been a more appropriate title

    I almost went there today but went to Lex and that drive to Lex is about 1 hour vs a 12 minute slow drive to Banner.
    Harry never gave me any issues.
    I do not smoke so I did not stay inside and chit chat for more than a couple minutes though.

    I adore Harry!! Glad nobody found his dead body in the office. He told me one time that's probably how it would go. Lol

    Perhaps the new owners will fix/clean up that range. As the only decent-sized outdoor range in the area, I'd be very appreciative to see it in better condition!

    Yeah sorry guys I changed the title. Didn't think about that lol. They are trying to de-nicotine the office and clean up years and years worth of stuff lying around. He said they want to make the range very family friendly. I guess Harry broke his hip and called it quits. I'll kinda miss the old guy.

    Might be quicker to build a new office. Don't think I have ever seen Harry without a smoke in his mouth for the last 30+ years! Nurses must have had fun with him as a patient.
